Porch Addition Part 1



We started a small kitchen/porch addition project back when there was snow on the ground. It's something I have wanted to do for six years (and my dream photo of it has been on my vision board for three years!).
My intention was to blog as we went along but that did not happen. I have just put up the finishing touches so I thought I'd share the progress with a few posts:

On the side of the house where you can see bare wood used to stand a cute but non functional screened in porch. The one thing I did like that I will miss is that it was sitting on a fieldstone foundation that unfortunately had to be removed. As you can see, we had a ton of snow so the outside part of the building process took a while.

This is what our kitchen looked like prior to taking the wall down. We had a pretty window looking out but the space was very small for our family now that the boys are older.

The framing process:





More to come ... Thanks for visiting ...
